Focus on environmental footprint.
Fujitsu General Australia has officially opened its new head office and warehouse in the western Sydney suburb of Eastern Creek.
The 11,093 square metre state-of-the-art five-star Green Star energy rated building houses more than 80 Fujitsu General Australia head office and Fujitsu General Assist staff, and an 8,500 square metre distribution warehouse.
Fujitsu General brand ambassador, Mark Taylor welcomed guests to the fourth Fujitsu General Australia head office as the evening’s MC.
Fujitsu General Limited president, Mr Saito said, “I am very proud and honoured to be here. Fujitsu General has been operating in Australia for almost 45 years and the Australian market has always been very important to us. Since our establishment in Australia, we have been embraced by the Australian community, hence our well-known company slogan, Australia’s Favourite Air. Tonight presents a new chapter in Fujitsu General’s history in Australia.”
Fujitsu General Australia and New Zealand managing director, Philip Perham said, “The new offices will improve operation and distribution efficiencies nationally, create local employment opportunities and pave the way for Fujitsu General’s next stage of growth in the air conditioning market.

“Fujitsu General held a similar official opening, ten years ago, 700 metres away. Relocating to the new premises in such a short space of time, reflects the business growth Fujitsu General has enjoyed over the last decade, thanks to the hard work of our exceptional teams nationally.
“Our new headquarters is designed from the ground up to deliver a work environment to meet Fujitsu General’s needs as an organisation for the next 20 years and beyond, both functionally and, most importantly, culturally.”
The new headquarters features an open plan office with collaborative working areas to encourage innovation and development; the latest sit/stand desks; an abundance of outdoor space; natural light throughout; an on-site gymnasium, well-being spaces, and fun zone; covered car parking for all staff; indoor kitchen, and outdoor lunch and barbecue facilities.
The building design enables Fujitsu General to minimise its environmental footprint through the inclusion of timber and modern materials, as well as plants with a reticulating irrigation system.
